The aquisition and ongoing maintainence of this highly specialised equipment is not adequately compensated for by Medicare alone.

We offer comprehensive eye examinations for children, and routinely record a large variety of binocular vision measurements. This is because we firmly believe that having 20/20 vision does not mean that the visual system is comfortable or efficient, particularly for prolonged near tasks. These extra tests of visual efficiency take more time and are not often performed routinely in high volume practices. To learn more please CLICK HERE.
